    WOW!

    My folks almost bought property at Sam Rayburn last year. Due to last minutes changes and family involvement on behalf of the seller, the deal fell through. My folks were crushed, but like most things in life - there was a purpose and it ended up being a blessing. They just finished building a lakehoue at lake limestone, which is gorgeous - and GAR FREE as far as I know.

    I have dealt with gar down in Brazos river area - they are very very nasty animals. If you ever caught one or got it in the boat, you needed a baseball bat to kill it. If you let it live, it would/could easily mame or kill all in the boat.

    I know. I took a dip next in a lake just upriver from a dam, and its durn deep! Can't say I'll do it again with visions of THOSE things possibly hiding below :shock:

    BTW, 99% of all lakes in Texas are artificial...dams involved.
